About Marnie's Army

On December 12, 2019, Marnie and Zack had a beautiful baby daughter. They named her Coda. Five months later, during the height of the COVID pandemic in NYC, Marnie was diagnosed with Stage IV,  metastatic, triple negative, inflammatory  breast cancer(IBC). After a period of time nobody should ever have to experience, they decided to share Marnie’s diagnosis with their friends on Face Book. They never anticipated the response. Over the next two and a half years, Marnie’s Army(on FB) grew close to 1,000 people. The Army gave Marnie, Zack & Coda the kind of support you only see from immediate family members who love each other unconditionally. To understand why, please go to “Marnie’s Story”.

Marnie loved her family, friends, theatre and music. The few expletives she ever uttered, were when she talked about cancer. Marnie would love to see her Army grow . . . and grow, and become a force of support for Cape Cod Theatre & Music, and an overwhelming enemy of cancer. Please “Join The Army” by donating to the Marnie’s Army fund via the Cape Cod Foundation, and by doing all you can to be a part of “Marnie’s March To Millway”.
